    Sunshine, I haven't tried Audible but according to its Website,

    [COLOR=rgba(20, 20, 20, 0.65)]Enjoy your titles on iOS (Apple iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad), Android, Sonos, Kindle and Alexa-enabled devices. And when you switch a device, pick up right where you left off.[/COLOR]

    I download books in my IPad and iPhone . I can listen to books on either but generally use my phone because of ease.

    Sunshine, in addition to the info SSusan gave @15$ a month, I keep getting audible credits somehow and I purchase book with the one free credit I get fairly often. I did recently buy 3 additional credits because that gives me books for about $11 . In addition audible produces original material and once a month you get to pick two of them for free.

    I listen on my 2 iPads and it follows from one iPad to the other seamlessly.

    I just finished The Arthur Trulov Story. I really liked it. Short but sweet. Now I have to choose another book.

    The Brail Institute has an audio book program that's free. My mother used it. My older brother would pick out books for her from a list regularly.

    After my stint in the hospital I was set up with visits from a home health agency (fully paid for by Medicare). A couple of days ago I had 3 visits by the home health agency, a RN who monitors my health, an occupational therapist who checks out things in the home and makes suggestions to help in daily living, and a medical social worker who offers and educates me and helps set up the programs available to me through Medicare.
    The medical social worker tells me that because of my double vision, I am eligible through the Brail Institute for their free audio book program and asked if I would like it! Yes, yes, yes!
    She is going to set it up. After her next visit I will update you all on how this goes.

    I googled the Brail Institute audio book program. Sounds like anyone visually impaired or disabled can get audio books free. Here is info. https://www.brailleinstitute.org/services

    Last night I again stayed up way too late finishing the book I was reading. The name of it is The Stars are Fire. It was good and I enjoyed it. Got it off Linda’s book club list.

    nuthatch/Joan, the Braille Institute you linked to seems to be one of the regional branches of the National Library Service (NLS) Talking Books program and that particular branch is for California people in certain counties only but anyone in the US will have a regional branch of that service and it will have access to the same materials and use the same system and equipment. In California there seem to be the Braille Institute as well as the Braille Talking Book Library. They are in different locations and serve different parts of the state.

    List of the California regional library branches:

    I'm starting in on several novels by Dawn Powell. I'm halfway through the first one, Dance Night (1930).

    Most people won't have heard of her but she was writing in the 1930s and 1940s.

    A little about her here:
